Miller, Roy Bruce

January 2, 1941 — September 7, 2020

Roy Bruce Miller, 79, of Overland Park, Ks passed away on September 7, 2020 at the age of 79 surrounded by beloved family at Menorah Medical Center.

Roy was born in Wyandotte County, Ks to Melval and Margaret Miller on January 2, 1941. He married Donna Miller on September 8, 1962, and they would have celebrated 58 years together just a day after his passing. A former Marine, Roy served in law enforcement in Johnson County, Ks for 32 years and retired as the Chief of Police of Fairway, Ks. He was known and loved as a coach and mentor to his children, grandchildren, and countless others as he had advice, wisdom, and life lessons to pass along to those who knew him. Often times this was done in his office (garage) over a Bud light.

Roy is preceded in death by his parents; his older brother, Stanley; his daughter, Christina; and great-grandson, Remington. He is survived by his wife Donna (née Miller); daughters, Melanie (Mike) Miller-Williamson, Deanna (John) Parker, and Kerri (Ernest) Truitt; son, Mike (Melinda) Miller; sisters, Missy (Bob) Luckinbill and Patty Miller; brother, Mike (Cheryl) Miller; 13 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren And many nieces and nephews. Roy’s greatest source of pride was this large family he and Donna built. Family whom he loved endlessly and served with complete selflessness.

As a beloved neighbor and friend, you will be greatly missed. Our prayers and sympathy go out to the family. May you rest in peace Roy with no more pain and suffering.

Some of the most fond memories I have of my youth are when the “Gallivan gang” would get together, often at Burr & Gladys’ house. That is when I got to know many of the cousins. I remember my first bike was Patti’s hand me down. I remember the cool Mustang with the triple tail lights in Burrs driveway. I remember helping Roy move out of a big house near 10th and Quindaro when I was young. Many years have past, and since Burr & Gladys are gone, we don’t get to KC much. I miss them, And and the big family gatherings. Those were good times, and simpler days. Have a great gathering on Saturday. Sorry we can’t be there to help send Roy off in style.
